Transparent But Clickable Button?

Apr 29, 2009

I monitor door cameras with a third party application that gives me multiple video windows for the various video inputs in the card. I want to create an application that will overlay the video windows so that each video window becomes a button I can click on to trigger some events (lock release for example).

I've managed to get something working by using the TransparencyKey of the form set to the backcolor of my button. I though I had it done, a great transparent button in the form, and handles all my click. However, there's a little issue with portability... it won't work if I have the Windows Classic theme enabled.

One of my systems is locked down with the windows classic theme. With the Windows classic theme (whether running XP or Vista), the transparency works a little too well, the mouse clicks actually go through to the underlying window and the click event never gets triggered on my application's button.

Button1.BackColor = Color.Cyan Me.TransparencyKey = Button1.BackColor

Make A Button's Bgcolor Transparent Over Only Other Con?

Oct 4, 2011

I have a borderless form with its transparency key set to its background color. I have a richtextbox a little smaller than the form clinging to the bottom left corner of the form. At the top right corner of the RTB, I have an overlapping button control that's clinging to the top right edge of the form (it's overlapping the top right corner of the RTB.) The image I have selected for the button is a circle, so I changed the flatstyle to flat, made the border 0, made the mouseover and mousedown background colors transparent, and of course made the control's background color transparent.

Here's the problem... When I run the program, instead of seeing the top right corner of the RTB that is overlapped by the button through the button, all I see is the window that's behind my program's form (or the desktop if there is no background window.) I want to see that corner! It's supposed to look like a sheet of paper with a button overlapping the corner.[code]...

Create Two Semi Transparent Panel?

Feb 14, 2010

I am trying to create two semi transparent panel.When I click on panel 1, the color is semi-transparent red. Panel 2 will become semi-transparent green. When I click on panel 2, the color is semi-transparent red. Panel 1 will become semi-transparent green.

Using class below:

Public Class TransparentPanel
Inherits Panel
Private mIsActive As Boolean = False
Public WriteOnly Property IsActive() As Boolean

[code].....

When I click on panel 1, it is semi-red, when I click on panel 2, panel 1 become semi-green. When I click back on panel 1, it seems to draw the semi-red on top and make it not semi-red but more red. The more click I do, the transparent is gone. Is there a way to drop the graphics and repaint it with semi-red? OR, is there a way to restore the graphics to its original state in semi-red? OR, is there a way to clear the graphics and repaint it with semi-red?

VS 2010 Making A Transparent, Clickable Button OR Label?

Oct 28, 2011

First post here, so I have no clue if this is the right place to ask this or not, but it looked like it.

Anyways, what I'm trying to do as an exercise is make a roulette game. I decided it would be best to put my buttons ON the actual table itself, so that the player can click which one he wants to bet on, and it'll bring up an Input Box asking how much he wants to bet, and yeah.

So, I tossed a button on there, set the parent to the picturebox of the roulette table, set the back color to transparent, and got rid of the text. Lo and behold, it's transparent!

Create Custom Transparent Panel Control In VB?

Dec 27, 2008

I'm trying to create a simple transparent PANEL control. I want to create a custom control based on the existing Panel Control with a property added called "transparent" which can be set to true or false. If it's set to true it's transparent(not invisible). So if I place it over some controls in a form say a button or text box... they are visible but disabled.

Create Transparent Labels Over A Video Control?

Oct 31, 2011

I'm pretty much out of ideas here... for everything else, setting the background color to Color.Transparent or setting the TransparencyKey works fine...

I have an mp4 Video which I need to play as a "background" of my form. To do this, I'm currently using the WMP control. My problem: I can't add any controls on top of it, since they always render a background. Which looks ** on the video...

How To Create Transparent Label In Menu Area

Aug 23, 2010

I've read many articles on how to create transparent labels but it seems to me that my particular case is not covered. Very simply I have a label placed in the upper right part of the form, which in fact is part of the menu strip. The label displays some info to the user but I wish it were transparent. I've tried various methods including
lblAct.Parent = mnuMain '(or Me)
lblAct.BackColor = Color.Transparent
lblAct.BringToFront()
But cant get it to work. How I can make that label in that position transparent?

Create A Window/Form Within The Edit Button That Would Say  Something Like "select Excel Sheet" Along With A Save Button?

Jul 28, 2010

I am busy with a Windows Forms application.The purpose of the application is to convert Excel documents to HTML format so that they can be published to a website.I have most of the code finished and the application is looking really good.I have although encountered a problem. On the Form I have created an Export, File and Edit button.With the edit button I would like the user to be able to select whether they would like to save the 1st,2nd,3rd sheet and so forth.

I would like to create a window/Form within the edit button that would say  something like "select excel sheet" along with a save button where the required sheet number could be saved or selected as a standard save procedure everytime.I know that I need to do this with the settings.settings control. I have tried numerous ideas up until now but it continues to baffle me.

Semi-Transparent Child Form (or Other Semi-transparent Layer) Within A Form?

Dec 16, 2011

I'm trying to draw a semi-transparent layer over my entire form when certain events occur, with a prompt in front of this semi-transparent layer (similar to the effect in Windows Vista/7 with UAC enabled)At first I was trying to use a custom semi-transparent panel, but this didn't seem to work at all. As such I'm now trying to use a child form within the form using the opacity property on the form. However, when this semi-transparent form is added to the controls of the main form and displayed, it loses it's transparency.I've got a hacky work around at the moment where the semi-transparent layer isn't actually a component within the main form, and the transparency works then, but obviously this isn't ideal and could potentially cause various issues further down the line.
